FIRST Tech Challenge to Relaunch In-Person Season after Virtual 2020/21 Season

FIRST Tech Challenge teams (up to 15 team members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team.

The 2020-21 season was held through remote competitions, and the 2021-22 season will be held in a combination of in-person and virtual events.
